I think that they shouldn’t have not done anything because they ruined the best game creator because they didn’t support someone
Bacon is not the best food ever, simply do not lie about that
There is nothing wrong with donating
The problem that some people don't seem to get is that each person individually has their own beliefs... if you don't agree with their beliefs then that's ok don't go out of your way to make life for the person miserable even if the vote for red... who cares?!?! It is all about the quality of their character and not about what they believe in politically
No one had any right to judge or harass him for his decision. It's his money and he has the right to donate to anyone.
i’m really gonna miss him and his work, but i hate his views
sooo, scott got cancelled?
I agree, American politics sucks. Playing video games is like my escape from reality, my fortress of solitude, but now politics have gotten into video games this past year that I’m reminded of these politics. Video games are about storytelling and fun not politics and agenda but that’s the world we live in
dude when scott retired i was so sad i cried cause i heard the political stuff thinking he retired from it but then i read his note and felt better knowing it was for his family and the amazing series would go on. it brought me comfort
This video made me even more sure of the danger the USA is in. The political division is heading toward a nation that won’t exist. The political parties are giving each other so much hate and it has to stop. I’m a conservative, but I don’t hate LGBT community members. Just because someone supports a party that isn’t yours doesn’t make them worse of a person. My sister for example is very far left, I love her to death. There is no excuse to hate someone based on their opinions. I don’t want to debate anything from this post, I just want people to realize the USA is in danger.
Okay, Republicans don’t hate gays. That is the biggest lie that I think I’ve ever heard and the media pushes that. Point is stop hating people based on their political views.
FNAF is the ONLY series I’ve stayed with throughout. Love the community and I love literally everything about it.
As a conservative person, I still love watching matpat and other more liberal influencers despite our obvious differences in political views. Im so confused why the second someone is conservative it makes everyone turn on them. The same goes for actors. Why does it have to be such a big deal?
Political ideology aside, you shouldn’t send death threats or dox anyone because they simply don’t agree with you, and even then Scott did donate to pro-lgbt. I agree if you don’t support how his money is used you can remove yourself from funding the games but death threats and doxxing have no place in the world, especially under the circumstances such as a different opinion on a topic.
Although I don’t agree on something’s MatPat said I admire that he expressed his own opinion and not what the internet wants to hear
Why is cancel culture a thing. Why are we allowing what your political views is, that makes you or breaks you in today’s society. Scott is the very reason why this game and the community itself has gotten to be where it is. So why does it matter on what his political views are, to want you to hate him so much. Without him the game would have never existed. Like how you are able to express yourself in your everyday life. If the roles were reversed it would be the same thing. Stop being toxic people and just grow up.
humanity will never evolve from taking offense from others beliefs. people won't grow up because they want others to believe in the same as them. ik I shouldn't be saying this but humanity is the reason why I want to 💀 🔫
I miss Scott already...but let's just hope that he always comes back.
Not EVERY company changes for 30 days Sega and Niantic for example, they both are still rainbow, its almost august, they show their support by saying “hey we don’t just care on the month it matters to anyone not apart of your group” its details like that that make me smile, it doesn’t feel like a corporate selling point. I know its off topic but it feels like it could and maybe should be stated, and that maybe keeping it for a couple months and not just 1 can really show that you care. Is that too much to say in 1 comment for a fnaf video that only talks about this briefly? Yes! Is it ok for me to? That’s up to you.
Scott had a priority when voting, military's strength and the only one that supported LGBTQ at the time he donated to first. I think he didn't do anything wrong and tried to support LGBTQ but military seemed to be his number one priority but I could see why people would be mad at him.
It would be great if Matt took Scott’s place, I don’t think there’s anyone more dedicated than him
You shouldn't change your perception of a game or a person just based off their political views not aligning with yours.
For anyone that’s confused about the severity of the backlash against Scott, it wasn’t just threats to him. His pregnant wife and his kids were being threatened with death and constant harassment. Not to mention untold amounts of doxing. Thank you Matpat for covering the topic is an objective matter.
I hate that he's making Scott seem more worse than he is cuz I don't care that he's funding right parties I am right myself but I'm not against rights to people of color lgbtq. But he makes it so if you're playing FNAF now you're helping homophobia which he could just be funding his political party and not the bad parts. Even the Liberals have their own bad side of government. It's just that he makes it apparent to look at the more bad parts of what Scott is funding.
Who the hell cares he’s entitled to have an opinion and he has the right to use his money however he wants I just can’t wrap my head around this who cares
I-im gonna miss fnaf😭😭😭😭
He has a right to give the money to give to who he wants. The first amendment of the united states people. Just because you don't like someone of something then just move on. Scott doesn't deserve hate for supporting who he believes is best. Why exactly do his choices bother you people
Bruh y’all are weird asf, just let the man support who he wants
Ok, ive watched the vídeo, never thought i would see mat pat get into this, It was really hard to whatch since i didnt agree at all with what he said. What I will say about the situation is the following: scott did not do nothing wrong, he can believe whatever he wants to believe and support whoever he wants, that's none of our business we don't and shouldnt have any business other than what he creates and what we pay for him to create, you can disagree with him sure but he's not a bad person for supporting someone he believes is right.
As a gay man myself I completely understand. And support his decision I might not agree with it but I'm not gonna mad over someones beliefs there is exceptions of course like Nazis kkk etc
That was so sad I am literally crying
nobody should have doxxed him, nor judge him for his actions.
Haven’t talk about FNAF in a while?
Hokage mat patt
Fnafs lore hasn't been solved after so many years
We can just let Scott cawthon go and allow him to move on. You should continue supporting the franchise if it makes you happy. We can also make the fandom self supporting fandom and continue to enjoy the franchise. Like the harry Potter fandom did. Do what you will with what I've said and i know you may agree or disagree with me and i will expect and respect your opinion. - Silver 😊
Ah yes, Scott has committed the most heinous crime imaginable... donating some of his own personal money, with which he can do whatever he wants, to the Republican Party. What a criminal.
honestly i’m happy this is the 50th fnaf vid because i feel like it’s important, even if it’s bad news all together
*ahem* hypixel skyblock elections are superior
Whats in the box We wont ever know
He didn’t retire he got canceled
He got canceled, then he retired.
“What other fandom has so many fangames dedicated to it?” u n d e r t a l e
American politics are just dumb
I don't give a flying frick about peoples political views. Its like saying since you support lgbt and you support Scott then you don't support lgbt. Its so wrong how people think just because you think one person is better than the other to guide our country in your own opinion can re-shape your entire carrier or life. Apparently in the 21st century people cant have opinions anymore, and that's what really concerns me.
matpat tries his hardest to convince himself someone he likes isn't republican
And does it matter
Did you even watch the video?
yeah. ok. i see. If I don't support the agenda of mutilating children, I'm a bigot. I watched this channel for GAME THEORIES not politics. More importantly how can you support a community that throws a tantrum and gives you death threats when you say something they don't like or just generally disagree with them? I believe that lgbt people are people, and should be treated as such, but we can't even agree on what that means anymore. On top of all this, if scott will be stepping down, someone else will take over, probably someone who's politically correct. Now your twisted fantasies of gay animatronics aren't too far away.
imagine if republicans reacted like this every single time a game developer reveals that they're are democrat
sorry, u received death threats bc of WHAT😃
Eh, not my problem, I love fnaf, Scott's cool, let him do him, I won't hate him for his believes
I would like to see mat pat make a politics theory but his fans from both sides might not like that
As soon as he said that Scott retired my heart almost stoped
Good lord, Americans are so whinny lmao. "Oh No! That tweet offended me, I will play victim now! "
Ngl you are right about some
To be honest I am going to miss Scott and the work he did and i hope that the series does not change to badly but hey only time will tell
15:10 Is one of those options moving to France?
scott playing with my emotions bro i dont to trust him or not i really confused
So this is all because a guy from Texas is remotely conservative
@Temmison it’s not because they have different views, it’s because the views they have are literally causing harm to millions of people
@TheHuskyK9 It isn't a issue man just has a oponion and twitter hates him for it
@TheHuskyK9 I never said its one sided?
@Temmison And that applies to both "sides" of the political spectrum. Certain people tend to think only one "side" is doing that yet they're both doing it and being hypocritical.
Talk about an oversimplification of an issue
My respect for Scott 📈📈📈
All thx to the gays.......
At 15:13, there's France ! France is a good choice to admire some politics. Not Macron's, of course. Politics are injust, others are ridiculous.
Matpat: Tell me what other fan base has as many games as fnaf. Me: You forgetting that undertale is a thing
can you still post more FNAF theories?
Wait what's happening with FNAF? Im out the loop, help please?
Hey matt. I watched ur fnaf vids, and idk if u said this but forgive me. In fnaf vr, u said ballora and golden freddy isnt in the game and said only why golden freddy isnt there. I think ballora isnt there because shes the wife of william afton. So she wants to torment him for not letting her in
I think Scott handled this pretty well (expect stepping down to avoid criticism), I mean he admitted to his allegations and took full responsibility. A lot of other UZmilkrs, developers, etc. wouldn't do that.
I honestly think Scott stepped down because he knew that the entire fnaf franchise was going to get dragged down with him if he stayed. The franchise would still get dragged to some degree, but obviously less if Scott disassociates himself with it.
8:47 Is that MovieBob? Noted eugenicist and one of the craziest people of the internet, like listening to MatPat talk at 8:47 and see the eugenicist super villain himself is Tonal Whiplash.
scott is based
There is nothing wrong with having a opinion!
3:09 are you saying I’m rich (really I’m not)
I didn’t fully agree with some of Matt’s points of view in this episode, but that actually made me happy. Because I found that Matt was willing to disagree and be disagreed with. He wasn’t looking for unanimous agreement like most everyone else. And I respect that.
I would like to think Scott knew a lot of people would want to boycott FNAF, so he did what he thought would be the best and left the company so the series wouldn’t be affecte
Tbh, why does it matter who votes for who, because either way you slice it people are going to remain bias on both sides thinking that im right your wrong. These days it's one extreme or the other. In a perfect world it would be nice to sit down and just talk about why you voted for who and not shat because of it.
24:00 I don't care if this was scripted, this part of the video is absolutely beautiful.
18:51 hey matpat? why is there is a name "cassidy" 0u0""""""""""""
It's just.. funny. I don't support the LGBT community, so does that make me a bad person?
@Dicky Gunawan Your joking right..
no, just because we disagree with someone's actions doesn't mean we want anything bad to happen to them. I think this whole thing is a big overreaction, people don't react like this every time a public figure publicly donates to a democratic candidate.
@Dicky Gunawan I also don't remember saying that I support anything that would harm them.
Yes, because if you don't support the LGBT community, you would most likely support rules that can eliminate the rights of those people.
Minute of silence for fnaf
i dont care if you support lgbt or dont i dont support them i dont care a bout them but i wont look diffrent at a person who suppert them or dont if they are them or arent you are jsut a normal personwith your choise
He only retired because a bunch of people who don’t agree with his choices bullied him into it. So your community that is all about tolerance, love, and support sure don’t have any of it. Maybe if they had something more in their life then just their sexual identity and hate for anyone that doesn’t believe like them. Then they might be more loving. God bless y’all you are more then just some sexual identity.
Also just because he retired doesn’t mean he’s not selling the franchise so he will still be getting money from it so yeah.
I am not LGBTQ+ but I know some people who are. They love FNAF and still do but when they saw Scots letter they didn’t really know what was happening and neither did I but when I looked into this I was hart broken because I truly support LGBTQ+ rights and after watching this video I see that what happens was not in Scots control I can’t hate on a man who has created one the the best franchises ever but I’m not going to judge anyone it’s your opinion think what you think I right.
GOD DAM RIP CUS I LOVED THIS SERIS IT WILL NEVER BE THE SAME WITH OUT BLUE DIMOND MAN
Scott is Christian so I understand
1st Amendment…. Now move on
Finally that retarded game should have stopped at the fourth one. The fan base ruined it.
Yeah the halo series should end aswell
Shouldn't this be proof that someone can have different political views and still be welcoming and inclusive?
Scott posted on Twitter that he cares about the lgbt community
But republicans love our LGBTQ community lmao
The fact that people in the comments are *still* undermining the nuance of this topic after watching this video boggles my mind. People are still talking like the issue is black and white, and like Scotr is anti-LGBT when he has proven himself to be extremely supportive of the LGBTQ community. He supported candidates because economy and foreign affairs are important to him.
